Fluent Announces the Release of GAMBIT 2.0 and G/Turbo CFD Meshing Software

(January 04, 2002)
Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, announces the release of GAMBIT 2.0, its general-purpose preprocessor for CFD analysis.

G/Turbo is an integral part of GAMBIT 2.0 and is designed specifically for meshing turbomachinery applications.

"GAMBIT 2.0 continues to allow engineers easier access into the CFD world," says Erling Eklund, Fluent's GAMBIT Product Market Manager. "With improved CAD integration and enhanced meshing tools, GAMBIT 2.0's features set new industry standards in meshing software," adds Eklund.

Improved CAD Integration

GAMBIT 2.0 directly accesses Pro/ENGINEER's geometry engine, eliminating translation losses. With an upgraded geometry kernel, GAMBIT's CAD translators support ACIS 6.3 and improve speed and robustness.

Automated Meshing

GAMBIT 2.0's automated tetrahedral, hexahedral and hybrid meshing functions improve the quality of the mesh. Fully-automatic, high-quality meshing can now be achieved in models of any complexity. Tremendous timesavings are realized by GAMBIT 2.0's ability to automatically refine meshes in areas of strong curvature and small gaps.

G/Turbo for Anything Turbo

"G/Turbo is an application focussed preprocessor which is completely integrated with the regular GAMBIT interface. Using this approach enabled us to produce an easy-to-use, automated tool that retains all the flexibility of GAMBIT," explains Craig Hornsby, G/Turbo Product Manager.

G/Turbo is a tool that enables the rapid creation of FLUENT meshes for turbomachinery applications. It offers the unique advantage of both structured and unstructured meshing, so while idealized geometries can be created very quickly, innovative design features may also be incorporated and their effects analyzed. It is supplied as an add-on to GAMBIT 2.0, and supports many industry standard formats including Pro/ENGINEER(TM), ACIS, IGES, STEP and Parasolid.


GAMBIT 2.0 is now available from Fluent Inc. Visit Fluent's web site (www.fluent .com) for a listing of worldwide offices and distributors.
